    Does anyone have any inside knowledge on what may happen to Australian Airlines when Qantas starts Jetstar International?

    I really hope they don’t do away with them I think its a great product although they have had a hard time with everything that has happened in Asia & Bali.

    I really think they could bounce back Ansett International did really well with many of the routes and I guess that’s is what Qantas wanted to capitalize on when starting Australian Airlines.

    One route I think they could try is Adelaide - Bali now that Air Paradise is gone it is left wide open.

    Why the double post Ngariman?

    I don't have any inside knowledge, but Geoff Dixon said the in Business Sunday interview a few weeks ago that Australian Airlines was here to stay (but not expand) as it serves a valuable purpose.

    See this thread for more details.

    G'Day Ngariman,

    Nobody really knows what is going on with Australian. Apparently staff are disappointed with being promised things by A.S + team and them not being delivered. Other than that the staff are happy and seem to enjoy their jobs.

    I can see AO being a Japan focused carrier. Jetstar will probably pick up the rest of the slack.

    I do not think there is much of a market for AO on ADL-DPS as Garuda pretty much have the route to themselves. If the QF group were interested in ADL-DPS I wouldn't rule out seeing an extension to ADL of the DRW-DPS service i.e ADL-DRW-DPS-DRW-ADL.

    Perhaps after the MAY 15 [tentative] JQ International launch, some more information on AO's future and direction will be released.

    I'm still waiting to see whether to introduction of Economy Plus on Australian was a diversion or infact real. There are many questions to be answered.
